POOH STICKS - STRAIGHT UP: NOISE POLLUTION C88-90 CD

Release Date: July 28 2023

New Band compiled CD of the Pooh Sticks Hits and Misses. Sleeve notes by Trudi

Here is what Trudi says

‘Mellifluous’… is a word you won’t hear much when conversation turns to early Pooh Sticks records. But ‘noise pollution’, sure: that comes up. I’ve even used it myself. So look away now if you must: ‘Straight Up: Noise Pollution C88-90’ is a selection of some of the most loved/despised/ignored tracks released by The Pooh Sticks on however many records it was before it all went wilfully ‘American’ sometime around dotted-line’ing for BMG mega-corp in 1991.

 The record has highlights and lowlights. You and me, we’d probably agree on most of them. We chose a reasonable cross-section, I think (although there could’ve been more tambourine), including:

- “On Tape” - zeitgeist-nailin’ strum and strangle

- “I Know Someone Who Knows Someone Who Knows Alan McGee Quite Well” - long title

- “Teenage High” - breathy sweetness sneaked onto the depraved Sympathy For The Record Industry label

- “Dying For It” - the Vaselines cover which beat Nirvana by a full two years (though theirs sold better)


 On behalf of the group, I hope you enjoy it. No, really. It was all a long time ago but I remember we had fun. Maybe you were even there having fun with us.

Trudi xx
